About this creation
Fourth Roof Commentary
On the third day of MOCmas an idea came to me...
So, my first actual LEGO firearm model, that actually bears a resemblance to a real one. This as explained in the title, is a modified MAT-49 submachine gun, used as a secondary weapon by the Sniper in Team Fortress 2.
My issues with the barrel are how it doesn't match the general dark grey color of a majority of the model, my stash of dark grey technic pieces is rather small, so black it had to be. But hey: For the sights, the best thing I could fine was a LEGO tire, which I cut a little bit to put inside a connection tile.
For aesthetical purposes only, I added a trigger and a hook handle, which sadly do not function. The trigger is certainly one of the weirder pieces I don't often use, considering its horn-shape appearance. I originally intended to have the snub hook move back and forth along the guides pieces at the back of the gun, but it would slip out if pointed in a downwards direction. Oh well.
Thanks for viewing, mates, only 21-20 days until Christmas! ~Ryan
